Definitely not going to make it anymore, back still solid this morning so can't see any chance of major improvement for Sat .
Hope you have a good run and a few more bodies than Hambleton Hills.
Will be out of action till probably early/mid August due to knee op at end of month so am well pissed of as this was to be the last time out with you lot for a while.

Yeh I can tell it'll be heavy when built by how heavy the frame is (not), build has ground to a halt though as I'm having to earn some pennies to pay annoying things like mortgage/fuel/rent etc and having a week off doesn't help as if I'm not in work I get no money but still have the same overheads, one of the few pitfalls of being self employed .
Hope the weather pics up for you all on sat .

I'll be back.
If this knee goes as well as the first then shouldn't be out of it for long, last time walked out of Hospital 3 hours after op, was very carefully setting a trial (with stiches n bandages) a week later and was climbing Goat Fell a month and bit after that so hopefully will be able to make some of the late August runs.
Might even have the E3 done by then so I don't have to hide with my modern thing.
